Anyone not voting UK has no idea that 90% of an iceberg is underwater. UK breweries have a beer to match any foreign contender from any quarter. Britain is the best place in the world to drink it, too.
As much as we like the idea of a cool one on a tropical beach, or something fruity on your European veranda - it's only a fleeting, ephemeral enjoyment of a world we cannot know. In our hearts we all yearn to be in that tavern in the Shire, enjoying the local brew of the week or month, taking in the oak beams, the hard-earned sunshine and the sounds of the countryside in our ears. That's what makes Britain great: its beer, and its pubs
English pubs are unequivocally shit. The beer may be nice but the carpets reek of piss and the pubs themselves are devoid of character.
I'm curious, the original comment you quote goes on about UK, but then you say specifically English pubs are shit. You wouldn't be Scots, Welsh or Irish would you? Not that I have a point. I never have a point really.
